How To Make A Junk in the Trunk Party Game
Learn how to make your own Junk in the Trunk game with this easy-to-follow guide. Get ready for some belly laughs and entertainment! This game involves shaking, jumping, and wiggling to get small objects out of a tissue box strapped to your backside.
You will be repurposing an empty tissue box to strap around the your waist and bounce out a collection of ping pong balls with your hips.
- Ping Pong balls
- Empty tissue boxe(s)
- Duck tape
- Ribbon for ‘belt’
How to make the box for junk in the trunk game
Step 1 Make the hole larger
Using a long empty tissue box, like the one in the photo above, cut the hole a little bit larger. Be careful not to make it to big.
Step 2 Add the ribbon belt
You can add the ribbon for the belt a couple of different ways. The most simple being with duck tape. Simply tape the ribbon to the back side of the box, leaving two very long tails which can be tied at the waist of the person playing the game.
The other way to add the ribbon is by making a couple of small slits near the edge of the bottom of the box on both ends. Thread the ribbon through.
Finally, add ping pong balls
Add 8 ping pong balls to each box and choose teams.
How to play the Junk in the Trunk Game
Place 8 ping pong balls inside of each box after the participants have strapped it onto their waist.
Set a timer for 60 seconds. When the game begins, players must use only their body movements to shake the objects out of the box. The first player to empty their box wins! This game is perfect for parties, family gatherings, and even team building events. Get ready for some hilarious moments and lots of fun!
How To Play Balance The Dice Game
Balance the dice is a minute to win it game that requires skill, focus, and a steady hand. This is a fun party game to play in teams and cheer one another one.
- 12 Dice (6 for each contestant)
- Popsicle Sticks (enough for each guest to have their own)
Each contestant must balance 6 die, stacked one on top of the other, on the popsicle stick held in their mouth. You can only use one hand. The other hand should be held behind the back.
The winner is the person who balances the largest amount of dice for the longest period of time, at least 3 seconds. Set a timer for 60 seconds to begin the game and get ready to laugh. (Our winner balanced 5 dice for 3 seconds before they fell off)
Toilet Paper Target Practice Game
This fun and easy version of Toilet Paper Target Practice is a team game loaded with laughter. Older kids, teens and adults can play this party game.
The object of the game is to be the first one to break the toilet paper by shooting a rubber band at it.
- 2 rolls toilet paper (you may not want 2 ply, this is harder than it looks!)
- Lots and lots of rubber bands
- 2 empty soda cans
- a long pole (mop handle, broom stick or whatever you have available)
First, use your long pole to add two rolls of toilet paper onto. One on each end. We stuffed a washcloth into the hole for each roll of toilet paper to keep it from spinning on the pole.
Then, unroll the toilet paper and attach the end to the empty soda can to anchor it.
Assign two people to hold the pole or balance it between two objects.
Let the rubber band shooting begin. Each player will shoot rubber bands at toilet paper attached to an empty soda can. First person/team to break the toilet paper wins.
This is a good relay game for teams! Just allow each team member a certain number of tries before they have to pass to the next person on the team.
You may want to keep going until one team/person wins. It could take more than 60 seconds!!
The Stack The Cups Game
Stack the cups is a fast-paced and exciting game that’s perfect for parties or gatherings. It’s easy to learn and can be played with just a few people or a large group. This is a good game for all ages including small children.
- 20 plastic cups per contestant
The object is simply to be the first one to stack the cups in a pyramid without the tower falling. If the tower falls, fix it and keep going!
The rules of the stack the cups game are simple. Each team must work together to stack their cups into a pyramid shape and then take them down as quickly as possible. The first team or person to successfully stack and unstack their cups within the allotted time wins.
Start with 5 cups on the bottom, then 4, then 3, then 2 and finally 1 on top!
The children were very competitive with this game! Our 5 year old grand daughter played this alone happy and content for an extended period of time. It’s a fun indoor game for rainy days too!
